Building a stronger American
Creating a stronger airline for you
We’re working hard to become the greatest airline in the world, and through our integration we’re offering you more convenient schedule options, the most modern fleet of any U.S.-based airline and access to more destinations around the world with American, US Airways and our oneworld® alliance partners.
Here's what's happening now
AAdvantage loyalty program in 2015
On March 28, we’ll begin moving Dividend Miles® members into the AAdvantage® program. The transition to a single loyalty program will take several days.
This is a very important milestone on our path to integration, and it puts us one step closer to operating as one airline.
As an AAdvantage member, you'll earn miles when you fly on American, US Airways, oneworld® and partner airlines. You'll also earn miles when you shop or stay with over 1,000 other partners. Then, redeem your miles for award travel, upgrades, car rentals, hotel stays and much more. And you'll enjoy new elite upgrade benefits on both airlines.
Your travel experience
We’re excited to enhance your travel experience; together we’ll bring you new planes, an expanded global network with the most nonstop routes of any airline and a more comfortable trip. You’ll enjoy a more consistent experience when flying American Airlines and US Airways now that we’ve aligned fare classes, meal windows and baggage policies, including checked baggage fees and exemptions.
Keep in mind that for now, each airline will follow its current policies on standby travel, pets, preferred seating and some ticketing policies.

Admirals Club members (including Citi Executive® / AAdvantage® World Elite MasterCardTM cardmembers) have access to more than 50 club locations around the world. We’re also enhancing the services and amenities across our network to increase your comfort and productivity.

Our regional carriers
We expect that the regional carriers we own – American Eagle and US Airways Express – will continue to operate as distinct entities, providing seamless connection service to the new American Airlines. Although they'll operate separately for now, all regional carriers for the new American are expected to eventually fly under the American Eagle name and livery.
